All of our Heliconia are grown from rhizomes from existing and flowering plants in Southern California. This results in large, very strong growing plants as shown here. Heliconia schiediana can take sun or part sun, gets to a height of sever to eight feet, and flowers freely in the summer. It is very cold hardy. Even if a hard freeze knocks down the leaves, plants usually come back vigorously in the spring. Flowers are red/yellow or orange/yellow. We’re putting the 5 gallon size on special.
The seventh photo is of a 15 gallon nursery plant. The blossom photo below is by TS at RPS. The last photo shows Heliconia plants in a garden.
